MUMBAI (TIP): Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray took potshots at the BJP and said that it has become a trend to display fake degrees.
“It has become a trend in politics to display fake degrees. Simply do the right thing. Why run behind false things,” Thackeray said, without naming anybody including Maharashtra Education Minister Vinod Tawde or Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani, at a book launch function in suburban Dadar.
However, a senior Sena leader said that Uddhav Thackeray’s remarks were also aimed at Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani, whose fake degree case has reached court.Incidentally, the book launched by Uddhav Thackeray at the function today evening, was written by former Maharashtra Chief Minister and Sena leader Manohar Joshi.Thackeray also said that corruption allegations against Maharashtra Women and Child Welfare Minister Pankaja Munde were “grave” but did not comment further on the
issue.”Allegations against Pankaja Munde are serious but the Maharashtra Chief Minister should take a decision on it,” he told reporters.
